Weight Loss Before & After (139)

~ Martha, 52 ~

Weight loss: 84 pounds

She says: ‘The key was slowly making changes in the way I ate, which eventually led to permanent habits. I used to think I was eating “healthy” foods, but my portions were way too large, not to mention packed with sugar. I started eating breakfast, then tried to eat five small meals a day, every three hours, instead of larger ones later in the day. I now pay more attention to food labels and allow myself the occasional indulgence to keep cravings at bay.’

Her weight loss tip: ‘Try keeping a journal to keep track of the food and calories you are eating each day.’
